    Avian flu has got worse in the park, I’m told it has affected 25 birds, 15 Canada Geese and the rest either pigeons or doves, because of this all footpaths around the lake are closed to the public, this is to stop people feeding the birds.
    You can still see the Little Owl in the new position in a fenced off area behind the bowling green pavilion.
